What is a "Nano Fit"

Asked by [ Editor ]

I keep seeing "Nano fit" on forums dealing with fitting.

Does this encompass more than just fitting a couple of Nanofiber Internal Structure mods to your ship?

What is "Nano fit"?

A "Nano" ship is fit for very high speed. In general this means adding nanofiber or overdrive mods (or a mix of both) to increase the ships base speed. Additionally a microwarp drive is used to boost the ships top speed while active. The effect can be increased further by adding speed rigs, hardwiring, implants and boosters.

The reason for nano-fitting a ship are many. The ability to employ skirmish tactics by picking and choosing your fights and being able to disengage if the odds were to swing in your disfavor are appealing to many pilots. Once you are engaged in battle your speed allows you to take fewer and weaker hits as missile damage is reduced and turrets may have problems scoring good hits. The ability to dictate range is also crucial.

Nano-Nerf
Before the nano-nerf you used to be able to fit a bunch of these modules and achieve extremely high speeds. In the nerf nanofibers went from reducing the ships mass, which in turn increased top speed, to a simple speed increase. This means the effects of overdrives and nanos, as well as polycarbon mods, overlap and are subject to stacking penalties. The staking penalty means that you get diminishing returns for fitting a number of mods that affect the same stat on your ship. Popular opinion would have it that it's not really worth fitting more than 3 mods for the same stat.

Example
The Vagabond is a good example of a "Nano" ship. This is not a perfect fit but it is something I know fits without having to check EFT.

With good skills this ship can reach speeds of ofer 3300m/s with the MWD running. If one were to overheat the speed increases to over 4700m/s. Even higher speeds are attainable if you plug in a complete snake implant set. Gang mods and command bonuses can also increase your speed.

Ive played around with nano, inertia stabs, and overdrive injectors...

My fast assault tackle frigs, uses two nano mods in the low slots... and its very fast and agile, in fact, Try crunching the numbers out in eft or eve hg, I get better results in all combination of three modules, using two nano mods. hope this helps.
